The Ludlow Public Schools migrated to Google Apps for Education in 2011.  Google Apps for Education is a broad IT solution that schools use to bring communication and collaboration tools to academic communities. Students, teachers and staff can quickly share ideas and collaborate more effectively when they have access to the same powerful communication and sharing tools. Students and teachers can create documents, spreadsheets and presentations, all the while collaborating with each other in real-time, right inside a web browser window.
Currently email is available to all LPS staff using Google Apps for Education.  In addition both staff and students in grades 4-12 have access to the tools available in Google Drive.
